Review

During the summer of 2018, I was fortunate enough to travel alone to Costa Rica to participate in a two-week wildlife and marine conservation under 18’s volunteering program with GVI. Alongside ten other people from different parts of the globe, we came together to form a team to fight against the heat, the thunder storms, the language barriers and the constant smell of dirty laundry, in an effort to support the future for Costa Rican bio diversity.
The work that we assisted and observed on was carried out in order to help the preservation of the conservation of endangered species, but I also learned a lot about myself and where I would like to expand my skills as an environmentalist. My experience has had a positive impact on myself, allowing me to grow and learn more about the world that we live in! Volunteering enabled me to increase my confidence in meeting new people, being in unfamiliar surroundings and taking on new challenges whilst surrounded by an amazingly diverse rainforest.
I can't wait to return to the jungle for another eye- opening experience!

Would you recommend this program?
